On February 20, Rihanna turned 27!

And while her day started with her shooting a music video, her Roc Nation label made sure the star ended it with a bang by throwing a surprise bash in her honour which was attended by A listers like Beyonce, Jay Z, Naomi Campbell, Russell Simmons, Queen Latifah, Tyrese, Lee Daniels, Paris Hilton & Nicki Hilton.

Her rumoured new man Leonardo DiCaprio wasn’t there and neither were the Kardashians in case you were wondering.

But there was a lot of star power, champagne, cake and high fashion!

To honor her mother, Riri took to her Instagram page to share the significance of her 27th birthday.

See what she wrote and check out all the star studded pics after the jump

27 years ago, my mother gave birth to her very first child at the tender age of 27! Life is never a piece of birthday cake, but I feel special that I was chosen by my Father in Heaven to make it here! And each year that goes by I am more grateful! Every day we wake up, means we get another chance at life….to live what we’ve learned and to discover even more, to be good to other people and to know that you are a part of their smile! I cherish these days, and I pray that God will spare my life to see many more! #Feb20
